The Heart

November 4, 2008
By Steven Conatser, Gilbert, AZ

I waited for the one to prove me wrong
But all I hear is the same gruesome song
I had hoped things would change
For I had never felt so strange

As time progresses and the horrid song fades
I am no longer known as the "Duece of Spades"
I stand alone as the only "Ace"
As I look in the mirror at the unfamiliar face

"I think you are lost?"
"No, my heart is merely being covered by frost."
The reflection faded away
Into an eternal darkness forever to stay

The key remains inside the lock
What had he truly intended to block?
None knew for sure but pieces lie on the floor
As people can no longer open the door.

The author's comments:
This piece in particular came along with a series of other poems after the heartbreaking loss of the girl I loved. Things have worked themselves out. Although my heart had been shattered if the you and whoever you are with TRULY love one another you will end up together in the end.
